Lepalepa Bugis Outrigger Sailing Canoe Full plans and lines for this 12ft 9in outrigger canoe.
The Lepalepa Bugis Outrigger Sailing Canoe of Sulawesi let me measure it and hopefully people all over the world will start building 20' tacking outrigger.
In them, the early Polynesians explored and settled the Pacific, leaving artifacts to the extent of their seafaring skills that we still marvel at today. The Hawaiian beach boys of Waikiki of the 1920's, 30's and 40's introduced many vacationers and adventurers to the joy of paddling, surfing and sailing the warm Pacific waters in Hawaiian Outrigger Canoes. Many of these canoes were traditional hulls carved from single giant tree trunks, and had been in use for generations. The interest in this traditional watercraft by younger Hawaiians and the transplanted mainlanders and surfers who immersed themselves in the Aloha Spirit, has helped to spawn a resurgence of the sport of canoe racing around the world.
There are one man, two man, four man and six man (woman), racing classes, designated by the number of seat positions. Just last year, (2002), a three man class was initiated with the design and creation of the three man canoe, the Holopuni OC3, by Nick Beck.
The Holopuni OC3 features kayak style cockpit openings that enable the paddlers to use individual spray skirts to keep out water in heavy seas and winds.
Nick's canoes can be rigged with a single ama, (outrigger float), connected to the canoe by two iako (spars) for paddling, or can be ordered as a sailing version with twin equally spaced amas, a daggerboard for increased upwind tacking and directional stability, and a unique and versatile free standing mast and sail system that doesn't require stays and can be reefed quickly and easily to tune the sail to the wind conditions.
The iako, (outrigger spars), are traditionally lashed to mounts on the hull, and the ama is lashed to the iako.
Nick developed a very strong and quickly rigged mounting system that replaces the traditional lashing, getting you in, and out, of the water faster. Hawaiian waterman Nick Beck, pictured above steering the sailing version of the Holopuni OC3, has been building and racing canoes as well as surfing his whole life, growing up on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.
He also got a picture he took of himself surfing in Hawaii, with a home built water housing for the camera mounted on the nose of his surfboard, in a 1963 issue of Life Magazine. Nick was slated to be on the cover, but Gordo Cooper went into space and Nick got bumped to the inside with the rest of the article on the surfing boom.
The OC3 is a revolutionary canoe that is light weight, fast as the dickens and able to surf large waves, while still being easy to handle by only one person.
The paddle version weighs in at only about 135 pounds, while the sailing version with it's additional reinforcement, dagger board well and mast step weigh in around 150 pounds. At just 30 feet long and light, they can easily be handled by two people, racked on the roof of a Toyota 4-Runner or trailered. With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. It's a homemade craft pretty similar to a modern Tahitian sailing canoe or a Malibu Outrigger.
K makes espresso, eggs with mixed vegetables including looted peppers, garlic, etamame. That night one of us had a weird dream about a truckload of stone credit cards getting dumped on me. The ferry skipper did a virtuoso job of surfing and crashing through the waves of the crossing.It's hard to take pictures of waves. The cruising guide warns that shoals and breakers make the Ventura harbor entrance difficult in rough conditions.
Well, Tim, I have a lot of admiration for your astonishing accomplishments in all directions. Location: Twisp, WA USA Development Class for Wind and Human Powered Ocean Racing This idea comes from my personal interest in a type of boat that does not seem to be currently available. Races would begin and end on shore, with the boats and all that will be carried in them above the high tide line. Ballast in the form of water and consumables would be acceptable and could be movable (may want to limit heavy metal and other types). Classes would include solo and pairs and possibly also bigger crews; men, women, and mixed. I?m inspired by Fredrick Fenger?s ?Alone in the Caribbean?, ?Rowing to Latitude? by Jill Fredston, and various other examples of adventure in small boats. Is anyone out there interested in the idea of small, light boats using only human and wind power that are seriously seaworthy, suitable for crossing oceans?


Yes there would be some characteristics in common with raids and raid boats (sailing, rowing, easily beachable) as well as some characteristics in common with ocean rowing boats (seriously seaworthy, rowing) and with small ocean racing sailboats (fast sailing, seaworthy, cabin).
Location: auckland nz Check out the Mini Transat designs - but maybe they are too race oriented for you. I don't think you'll get much interest in designs that are intentionally(that is, by arbitrary rules)slowed down. It could be interesting to see what sort of boats would result if a development class and races successfully combined both human and wind power with really serious sea-worthiness and ocean crossing capability. Every design is a compromise and you have to pick and choose from many features - most of which eliminate other good features you have to leave behind. I've been told, by a member of a winning team, that rowing rather than sailing often determines the outcome of the Shipyard Raid held in the somewhat protected waters east of Vancouver Island, but that is an area with unreliable wind and narrow passages between islands. I still think that the combination of human and wind power with serious seaworthiness, sleeping aboard, light weight, and beachability is a worthwhile goal. I do think that a boat with the characteristics I imagine could be competitive in Raid events. Originally Posted by scotdomergue As this thread continues I can see how the sort of development class I have in mind might lead to development of interesting and worthwhile boats.
I think the concept is interesting, but I'm not so sure about the number of people who today would actually build a boat to meet the development rules. There is no comparison between a sailboat in a race with dependable wind versus a row boat. The Everglades Challenge does require serious seaworthiness - Taking the fast route across the Gulf exposes entrants to potentially dangerous conditions that can not be avoided if conditions deteriorate.
Boats with good seakeeping abilities, self righting and comfortable in rough seas are slower than light, fast boats. Development class rules can lead directly to chaos if not tight enough - or worse can lead to non-competitive racing.
Look at the Sydney Hobart that is on right now - the weather started bad and deteriorated to the point where a major part of the fleet sensibly abandoned - but these are all serious offshore ocean racing boats, well prepared and equipped with engines and safety escorts and equipment. Basically, I see RAID boats as appropriate for archipelago races in semi-protected water with multiple bail-out options and safety within a half-day's sailing. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Long-time sailor Jim Stuart contacted me a couple weeks ago about his ultra-cool DIY trimaran sailing canoe. Jim shares several Facebook pages featuring this largely self-made craft (all photos, along with the video on this page, are taken from these Facebook pages and are used here with Jim’s permission) below. As you view the following pics, keep in mind that what began its service as a 17′ kevlar canoe is now a super-tweaked double outrigger.
It’s so great he built her and has really been able to enjoy this boat for years now.
Pretty nice approach… I love the flaps idea and would appreciate some more on them and construction as they seem to be quite effective ( in the FB video the lift is clearly visible). As for the boat some steady pictures might illustrate the transformation better than a head-mounted camera… we get to see much interesting nature but very little detail or even general views of the transformed canoe itself. The rig transformation seems clever and efficient too and the mast seems not to be a windsurf mast bending under tracttion, but a straight aluminum one and this would be another interesting point on which to expand. I’ve not seen a shallow V foil before, only deeper, surface piercing V or flat – what is the purpose of the various different shapes?
The front board should be able to correct this, as well as a mast brought back a foot or more or twin boards slid forward. Ideally, the centre of the combined sail area should be about 4% of boat length ahead of centre of lateral resistance ( combined board, hull and rudder).
I’d love to be able to use a light-weight kevlar racing canoe as a vaka, but the low freeboard has always seemed to be the problem. I am wondering myself about various (practical) ways to handle the lower freeboard of an outrigger canoe such as this one. All of those ideas are good ones for dealing with spray and other shipped water and used billboard tarps would be a great material to repurpose for that kind of decking and spray skirting. You could DIY it as well, but the angles do need to be pretty precise or you might just make more spray…but properly sized and placed these kinds of strakes can also add lifting area that can help to even out the ride and keep you from driving through waves as you push a long narrow hull with a high deadrise bow faster. 3) Put much buoyancy in the amas thus contributing to keep the vaka hull from lowering the leeward rail.


84F on Wednesday at Horseshoe Bay, south winds to 20 mph, and Slue Foot Sue sailed just fantastically all afternoon! We get a few really warm days each winter, but this is the first time I’ve managed to sail in January, and it was great. BTW I’m ruggedizing the front hydrofoil over this winter (Q1-2015), and will do away with the aft foil altogether. I hope to move to Florida in the near future … but perhaps I may now consider Texas for outrigger canoe sailing instead. Each year, more and more expats are looking towards Central America in search of the perfect retirement destination, and with stunning scenic beauty and an … (Read It) Costa Rica Primary: Everything You Need to Know About Property LawsYou may have noticed that a lot of our recent articles and eBooks laud Costa Rica as a great place to invest or buy a home.

While K sails, I lash the backrest tube onto the front crossbeam with a strip of innertube. Here it is rising over my shoulder.The dark brings a chill so we put on more warm clothing. You may want to do something about the photos with the misapproproated government property in them. If you don't go with an outrigger type you'll need ballast OR you'll need to use such small sails that they would be incredibly slow. Unless you did it by constructing a course where there would be places too narrow or windless to sail? So there you have a large sailing dinghy - something like this, but with a small cabin: Agreed.
After using it in whitewater for several years I decided to rig it for sailing, as there are many large lakes in central Texas. On stronger winds, the centre of the sail slides backwards, and makes the lee tendency even stronger. The winds were steady from the south at 12 mph with frequent (but not violent) gusts up to 20. If it makes you feel any better – a cold front is coming through now, and it will be mid-40s and rainy this weekend. The forward lift is enough to give me the added speed and maneverability I want, and it keeps the freeboard high, the leeboards clear of drag, and my inside hull dry. Our biggest reasons for that include the country's incredible … (Read It)Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
Such a race has been bandied about here in Auckland but nothing substantial has come from it yet.
The objective was rig it out it elegantly, but on the cheap, with as much non-sailing hardware as possible. I’m sure that there are many potential improvements, but will leave those experimentations to others. The aft hydrofoil works, but only at higher and scarrier wind speeds when it isn’t fun to sail.
Outrigger Canoe free canoe plans I am a novice to boat building although I have built some I have a plan to make a18 ft sailing outrigger canoe. The lake section I stayed on was mostly east west and not too wide, so no long fetches and essentially no waves. As I am a windsurfer also, I want some speed Using an outrigger-style canoe stabilizer reduces the tenderness of a canoe.
Studying what was used then and whats going on now might lead to the kind of boat you're after.
I borrowed that idea from Sven Yrvind, who uses them on his micro yachts to sail around Cape Horn.
